Delay 'of Xaral Battle Spreads Con
sternation in Russia.
CHICAGO. May 2C (Special.) The
Dally News' correspondent, cabling
from St. Petersburg sajys:
Admiral Avellon's confirmation of the
story that Admiral Rojestvensky is se
riously 111 that his fleet Is on its way
to Vladivostok and that there will be
no battle before it reaches Its destina
tion. Is possibly Intended to mislead
the Japanese. At the same time it has
caused consternation throughout Rus
sia and an unprecedented slump In con
sols, because It means an indefinite
prolongation of war, anarchy and rev
olution and final bankruptcy.
M. Xokovtzeff. Finance Minister, has
reported to the Czar that the treasury
is in financial straits and that it now
faces as a last resource the using of
foreign demand bills. The sold reserve
would be virtually mortgaged, but
even then sufficient funds for the con
duot of the war could not be furnished.
The officers at the front have not been
paid for several months. Kokovtzeft
urges peace and the payment of an In
demnity, which would be a small mat
ter compared with the losses caused by
the Interior crisis.
It is said that Grand Duke Alexander
carries to Berlin a statement of the
utmost concessions the Czar will make
to Japan. It Is believed that the gath
ering of international dignitaries at the
Crown Prince's wedding may be the
preliminary to peace pourparlers
IS STOESSEL A HERO OR NO?
Port Arthur Editor Says No, Czar
BERLIN. May 26. Germany's gen
eral staff is pluming Itself on having
acquired the innermost secrets of the
military defense of Port Arthur. The
information has been bought from Paul
Lassmann. editor of the Novikrai, the
emi-offlcial newspaper founded at
Port Arthur by Admiral Alexleff.
Lasbmann has arrived in Berlin to
arrange for the publication of a book
about the siege. He Is a pronounced
enemy of Stoessel and the forthcoming
book is intended primarily to explode
that officer's claim to rank as a hero.
Colonel Schebeko. Russian military
attache at the Kaiser's court, has re
turned from a visit to the Czar. His
Majesty told Schebeko that he was
convinced from evidence that Stoessel
had produced that the General was not
deserving of censure for having sur
rendered the fortress and added that
he had ordered the inquiry now pending
and that it was not a courtmartlal, but
was merely intended to pacify public
Far from condemning Stoessel, the
Czar censures General Smirnoff, com
mander of the garrison at Port Arthur,
for refusing to join Stoessel in the
capitulation negotiations. "When Japan
releases Smirnoff, who Is now a pris
oner, he will be court-martialed.
STARVATION IN EAST SIBERIA

ST. PETERSBURG, May 2$. The
Rusaky Slovo of Moscow today prints
a dispatch from Vladivostok which In
dicates that the inhabitants of the
whole maritime region of Eastern Si
beria, Including the Island of Sakha

"Should the war continue six months
longer, starvation will be universal in
all this remote region."
GIVES "WARNING TO CHINA.
Russia May Extend Zone of Hostili

ST. PETERSBURG, May 26. The Rus
sian government for the third, time has
warned China that, unless she can Bring
Japan to make agreement denning the
line of neutral zone north of Tie Pass,
Russia will consider herself forced, to use
Mongolian territory 'for military pur
poses. M. Pokoteloff, the new Russian
Minister to China, left St. Petersburg for

LONDON, May 27. The Times' corre
spondent at St. Petersburg says that Rus
sia's decision to extend the area of hos
tilities into Mongolia has evoked a senti
ment akin to consternation among the
diplomats there. It Is regarded, he says,
as the first step toward annexation and
the opening up of the question of the
partition of China.
ANYTHING TO RAISE MONEY
Russia Sells Railroads and Jjcvlcs
ST. PETERSBURG, May 20. That
the Russian Government's war chest Is
undergoing extraordinary strain there
is no doubt, but that it was in such
serious condition as to cause the gov
ernment to contemplate the selling of
three of the most lucrative railway
lines in the empire was hardly to be
expected. But such is the report. It
is said that the Ekaterlninska line, in
the south, the most prosperous of all
the three; the Kharkoff-Mnlkolalevsk
line and the Kursk-Kharkoff-Sebasto-pol.
line have been privately offered
for sale, and a French-Belgian com
pany has signified Its intention to pur
chase them for 800,000,000 roubles. The
average net takings on the three lines
is 25,000,000 roubles.
It is credibly affirmed that a spe
cially appointed official has gone to
Moscow in order to receive several
hundred millions of roubles which
wealthy members of the nonconformist
sect have promised to subscribe for the
expenses of the campaign, if the gov
ernment relieves them of their civil
disabilities. Extraordinary measures
are being adopted to replenish the war
chest. Thus, subscription lists are
being circulated among the officials of
the various departments, who are in
formed that their names and the sums
offered will be reported to His Majes
ty. But the donations are given un
willingly. For instance, a list which
in Koborlak contained the names of
eight officials who contributed alto
gether 670,000 roubles four weeks ago
has received no addition since then.
JAPAN HAS PLENTY OF SINEW
Financial Ability to Carry on "War
TOKIO, May 26. Baron Komura, Minis
ter of Foreign Affairs; Baron Sone, Minis
ter of Finance, and Baron Shibusawa ad
dressed the Clearing-Housa Association
today. Baron Komura said that the
financial capability of Japan had com
pletely surprised the world. Ho was glad
that Japan was showing a financial and
productive ability as well as strength on
the battlefield. The war. he said, would
last long, and he trusted much In the
commercial ability of the nation after the
war was ended, when a greater prospect
would open before the country. He ex
pected, he said, further, that the com
mercial interests would do their utmost
to develop and extend commerce. He also
expected the introduction of foreign capi
tal, and he counseled his hearers to fa
cilitate this introduction by inspiring for
eign capitalists with confidence In the
Baron Sone thanked the financial and
commercial Interests for their great as
sistance In financing the war.
Baron Shibusawa said that the com
merce and productive capacity of the na
tion was growing despite the war. The
bank clearings, he said, for 1504. exceeded
f2.000.000.000. which amount was unprece
dented. He expected, that the bank clear
ings for 1905 would exceed 12,500.000.000.
THEY PUZZLE THE RUSSIANS
Japanese Tactics Attributed by Chin
ese to Disaffection.
GUNSHU PASS. Manchuria, May 26.
The Japanese tactics are puzzling.
They gave way at the slightest pres
sure against their center on both the
railroad and the Mandarin road. The
Chinese ascribe the retirement to
trouble among the reserves, some of
whom they say arc almost in a state
of revolt because the government has
not kept Its promise to return them to
The retirement of the Japanese cen
ter is interpreted by some of the Rus
sian officers as a postponement of Field
Marshal Oyama's offensive because of
the bad state of the roads, but this
view is not shared by all the officers.
In order to prevent wrangling over
the Question of reward or censure
arising from reports forwarded by the
commander-in-chief through the army
corps commanders. General Linievitch
in an order of the day has directed that
copies of the original reports of all
encounters and Individual exploits be
transmitted to his staff, as well as
briefer reports through the ordinary
JUST AS THEY DID BEFORE
Japanese Attempt to "Wreck Bridge
and Cossacks Raid.
ST. PETERSBURG. May 26. The
'daring attempt of the Japanese, May
23, to cut the railroad and blow up the
bridge over a tributary of the Tung
liao, 20 miles south of the Russian
main line from Kwanchengtsu to Klr
ln, which are now connected "by a field
railroad, bears a striking resemblance
to the blowing up of the bridge over
the Kalnskair Blver. 160 miles north
of Mukden, by Major Nariganuma, of
the Japanese Army, just before Field
Marshal Oyama undertook the advance
against General Kuropatkln at Muk
den. Another parallel of the raid of May
23, occurring while General Rennen
kampff's cavalry recently was working
around the Japanese left, south of
Fakoman, just as Nanganuraa's exploit
coincided with General Mlstchenko's
raid on Niu Chwang in September last.
According to reports, the raid of May
22 was launched from Mongolia.

Secretary Defends New Rate Bill.
Tuttle Declares Government
- Ingalls for Supervision.
CINCINNATI,: May 25. The celebration
of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the
Cincinnati Commercial Club closed to
night with a banquet, at which the speak
ers discussed the- questions of the day.
Secretary of "War Taft made the prin
cipal speech on "Policy and Practice,"
If the -Pinassa Canal were Inside the terri
tory of the United State, of course all ma
terial used on the canal would pay dutr or
be bought In the United States, but, as the
construction of the canal Is a number of days"
Journey from the tariff wall of the United
State. It presents exactly tho lime case as
Is presented In the case of the Philippine
Islands. Now, If Congrcts wants to pay more
than France -was wllllnc to pay, then they
are at liberty to do so, but In the absence
of a rule we feel we must carry out the
rule that applies. That law require that,
prices and quality being the same, we must
buy American goods. In the absence of a
rule, we feel bound by our trust to build as
cheaply as possible. "We submitted the ques
tion to Congress on thie line, asking Con
gress to lay down a rule. If there Is no rule,
we must build as a business man would build.
Now there Is no question of protection or
free trade; It la merely a rule or duty under
the law as it stand. If the rule or law is
changed we must change.
He spoke of tho work of the coramls
ioners on the canal and praised highly
the men who have been put at the head
of the work. He then spoke of the rela
tion of the Government to the railroads,
Defends Rate Bill.
I cannot but think the discussion which Is
now coinr on has had a much wider ecop
than is necessary. The question Is the par
age of certain legislation and the discussion
Is properly narrowed by consideration of what
that Irrigation Is.
He explained the present status of the
interstate commerce law. calling atten
tion to Its reference to "unreasonable
rates," and the position of the Inter
state Commerce Commission on the mat
ter. He Insisted that the measure pro
posed was a very moderate measure, and
that it was unfair to denounce It so
severely as had been done. He believes
the changes proposed by the Esch
Townsend bill would result In good.
Plea for Railroads Entered.
President Lucius Tuttle, of the Boston
& Maine Railway, spoke of "The Rela
tion of the National Government to the
Railways." He said In part:
I have yet to meet the well-versed railroad
official who believes It possible to select any
S or any 20 men. no matter how able, honest
or expert, to whom could be safely Intrusted
the power to supervise or prescribe, clftier In
whole or In part, the transportation ratrn of
this great country without risk of imminent
and widespread danger to every commercial
I believe I voice almost without dissent rail
road opinion in raying that it accepts the
general principle that the Government's re
lation to public transportation companies
should be that of wise supervision to prevent.
Insofar as Is practicable, every unjust prac
tice, cither by thenrior against-them.-' I have
reasonable faith that the agencies that have
been mainly Instrumental in building up fo
succei9fully and wonderfully the world's In
tercourse cannot have o suddenly gone wrong
In the performance of their most Important
functions as to warrant th hasty application
of drastic and untried remedies.
Ingalls' Drastic Remedy.
The closing speech, by Melville E. In
galls, who recently retired from a long
term as president of the Big Four Rail
way, brought a new and striking sug
gestion for added powers for the Inter
state Commerce Commission. After re
marking that. as. he had retired and was
now a private citizen, he would talk
railroad rates, he said:
Tou should Investigate the railroads as you
do the National banks; turn them Inside out.
Give the Interstate Commerce Commissioners
all the clerks they want and full authority
to investigate the railroads, but don't give
them power to fix rates. What the people
want and will have Is equal and fair treat
ment to all.

Illinois State Bar Association at the
Chicago Beach Hotel today on "The

Judge Parker's address dwelt upon tho

I would emphasize anew the thought that,

and the heir of great privileges which yield
commanding opportunities. It Is more in

recognize that theso privileges and powers

no escape, as. indeed, there ought not to be,

the Judicial branches of our system shall,

any of the others the one man who "should
resent and resist the dangers thus threatened
Is the American lawyer.
The traditions of his profession, the execu
